It may be the International Break, yet there’s still plenty of domestic action to get stuck into. We’ve picked out three matches in which we’re expecting a hatful of goals. These four games are taking place across the divisions and they should serve up plenty of entertainment on Saturday afternoon.

There aren’t many League One fixtures taking place this weekend although this game at Bloomfield Road will go ahead. Blackpool stuck four past Peterborough in their last L1 encounter and did the same against Morecambe in the FA Cup last weekend. With Nathan Delfounso and Amand Gnandouillet paired together again, they most certainly offer a threat. Sullay Kai Kai also looked like he was recapturing his early season form on Saturday and could also be unleashed here. AFC Wimbledon have certainly more open since Glyn Hodges took over and although they only lost 1-0 to Burton in their last away game, they will certainly offer a threat going forward. However, their defence continues to leak and their hammering at the hands of Southend in the EFL Trophy in midweek won’t fill the travelling fans with confidence.
There are plenty of meetings between south west clubs in League Two this season and Cheltenham make the trip to face Exeter on Saturday afternoon. Matt Taylor’s side have been a little inconsistent in recent weeks, but you can generally rely on them at home. They’ve kept plenty of clean sheets here this season, which is a tough worrying, although they come up against a side who tend to score wherever they go. Cheltenham under Mike Duff have been brilliant this season although he won’t want to reflect on the 7-4 midweek loss to Newport in the EFL Trophy. On the road, they’ve scored seven in their last four and have conceded in each of their last two. They’ve scored in each in each of their last nine L2 games and should be able to continue that sequence here.
Harrogate were in FA Cup action on Monday night and despite taking the lead, they were defeated by League One Portsmouth. The North Yorkshire side have been excellent at home this season, yet their form on the road has been a little erratic. They lost 4-2 to Eastleigh two weeks ago and they could be suceptible at the back against a lively Bromley outfit. The hosts have scored eight times in their last three home matches and are always a decent bet to find the net in front of their own fans. They have found the net in every single match here and their last four matches against top-eight opposition have ended 2-1, 5-0, 3-3 and 1-2. Harrogate have found the net in each of their last nine National League matches and this should be a very entertaining Saturday afternoon.
Neither of these two sides will be pleased with the start that they’ve made to the National League North season. Bradford PA are showing signs of life, yet they still sit at the wrong end of the table. They have been scoring goals at home though and recently beat Hereford 3-2 and they also gave Kings Lynn a scare (2-3). They haven’t scored many, but 73% of their goals have arrived in W.Yorkshire. Leamington are also struggling and their defence caved in once again on Tuesday night. They’ve now conceded a whopping 23 goals on the road, although they have netted themselves on eleven occasions. 75% of their matches on the road have ended with three or more goals and against a side who aren’t averse to netting in front of their own fans, that could result in an action-packed 90 mins.
